My Dear Family in Maine,
It is with deepest heartfelt sympathy that I write this memorial tribute to my dear brother-in-law David and his family.
As the husband of David's sister Cindy (Taylor) I have had the priviledge of knowing David the past 35+ years. My memory goes back to the first time I met David. He was riding a Harley just like his brother Paul and I thought to myself, "What a cool guy!" In the years that followed I looked up to him and made sure I behaved myself around his younger sister for fear if I didn't he might put a hurtin on me! Just kidding.
David was not a man of many words. He kept alot of his thought and feelings to himself. But I will always remember him for big blue eyes, rosy cheeks, a cool "Kenny Rodgers beard", his quiet laugh, love of motorcycles and being a hard worker at the Dayton Sand and Gravel.
I'm not sure of David's relationship with Jesus Christ. But I'm hoping that being raised in a fine Christian home that he made a profession of faith as a young boy or teen in one of the church's children's or youth programs.
To David's family, even though I cannot be with you in presence during these difficult days please know and be assured of my thoughts and especially prayers for God's presence, strength and comfort.
I look forward and hold on to the future day of seeing my dear brother-in-law again in Glory. If there are motorcyles in heaven, which there isn't, I know he'll be there to pick me up at Heaven's entrance.
God bless you David. I am endebted to you for your love and friendship,
Your brother in Christ,
